The advent of the bow and arrow in North America advanced the way of life for all Native Americans. It provided a weapon of war and perseverance that was unmatched and allowed the archer more strikes at a greater distance. Join us at the Native Village as we demonstrate making and using the bow and discuss its importance as a tool of survival.
